New Transformers Game Is For Kids

Activision have announced that they’re publishing a new Transformers game for “kids of all ages”. It’s going to be called TRANSFORMERS PRIME (in capitals, apparently) and will be based on the “hit animated television show”.

In collaboration with Hasbro, the game lets – and here’s where it completely loses me – “fans play as their favorite AUTOBOT characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil MEGATRON and his new secret weapon.”


Sounds amazing.

“Players step into the roles of OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD and more as they explore unique vistas all around the world with brawler-style combat and diverse driving sequences.”

“Along the way, gamers cultivate friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf — the human characters from the show — as Team Prime sets out to protect mankind and eliminate the DECEPTICONS once and for all.”

“We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humor and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages to enjoy,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing.

The game will be released for the Wii, 3DS and DS later this year.



  1. GOTY.

  2. For kids and also Tuffcub.

    • Actually I dont follow Prime, but I know lots of fans who do.

  3. “will be based on the hit animated television show.” You missed a letter out there.

    Seriously that show is retarded.

  4. Please.. keep it away from me, its going to be horrid no matter who its aimed at..

  5. that Megatron seems way more devious than the one in the films.

    i like him. ^_^

  6. Ahhhh I love Transformers Prime! Saying that though I think I’ll give this one a miss as it’ll probably end up like the Transformers Animated game a while back. Great for one run through then nothing else to do.

  7. Any money says this game is shit got lol.

  8. Just saw the trailer for this. Looks pretty bad. Plus, it annoys the hell out of me whenever the heros are kids as i’m pretty sure massive robots can do much more then a kid can.

    Plus, i didn’t even know that show existed. I knew Transfromers from the late 80s/early 90s existed. Did they really have to shout the name at Alex?

  9. Might pick this up with fall of cybertron plus my boy will love it he
